campaigner. we congratulate him on his re-election. what we don't know is whether he has the leadership qualities necessary to lead his party to a bipartisan agreement on big issues like we currently face. >> reporter: what you're seeing here is a slightly different strategy than we've seen in the past. that's the president focusing more on stakeholders, making his case to the public. bringing business leaders here to the white house, going on the road. and spending less time with lawmakers at least up to this point. >> sounds like a pressure tactic rather than perhaps a negotiation tactic. we'll keep on it, and let us know who else goes through those doors. dan lothian, thank you very much. you know, as we watch this story playing out, each side wants the other to give in. or at least give a little more in the fiscal tug-of-war. in a little less than a couple of minutes now, we'll see what the republicans want from the democrats. and what they might offer to get what they want. n't just listen . listen to these happy progressive customers. i plugged in snapshot, and 30 days later, i wa
the election about the fiscal cliff. what is at stake here for both sides? what happens if they don't get a deal? >> well, look. i think what happens to both sides, it's not even what happens to both sides, what happens to us which is the collective, right? it's what happens to the country which is 4% of gdp disappears overnight. and that's what this is all about. by the way, it's not just about what happens january 1st or 11:59 the day before january 1st. it's already starting to impact the economy. whether it impacts consumers -- and we'll find out today, by the way, in terms of thanksgiving and what's that meant, whether consumers are coming out or not -- but thoorz the bigger issue that manufacturing has already started to slow down. people are starting to worry. it may end up in the economic numbers already, just the fact that we're having this debate. and then come january 1st, do we go over? what does that mean? is it the fiscal cliff? or does it look like the fiscal bungee cord? that's what some people are calling it. we go over for two weeks and then we snap back and get a deal a
raise tax rates. which is why he's pushing against that idea. two senate republicans up for re-election in 2014 have bucked norquist saying they are willing to let taxes ride. chambliss spoke to his hometown station. >> that pledge i signed 20 years ago was valid then. it's valid now, but times have changed significantly. and i care more about this country than i do about a 20-year-old pledge. >> on sunday south carolina senator lindsey graham also broke ranks saying the norquist pledge can no longer be a conservative litmus test. >> when you're $16 trillion in it debt, the only pledge we should be making to each other is to avoid becoming greece. but i will violate the pledge, long story short, for the good of the country only if it democrats will do entitlement reform. >> but a bipartisan consensus to raise taxes grows, republicans insist they won't budge on kaepg the bush tax rates for the wealthiest at 33% and 35%. they've expressed more openness to raising revenue by eliminating individual loopholes and deductions in the tax code and believe they have public opinion on their side.
with the president since the election, actually since the debates. does this do either of them any good? rick santorum is out front. and julian assange is out front to answer critics and our questions tonight. let's go "out front." >>> good evening, everyone. i'm erin burnett, outfront tonight, an early christmas miracle. or at least the glimmer of one today. barack obama bringing glad ti tidings of great joy to avoid the fiscal cliff. >> i will go anywhere and do anything it takes to get this done. it's too important for washington to screw this up. >> and john boehner, not to be outdone, put a little early present under the tree too. >> i'm optimistic that we can continue to work together to avert this crisis and sooner rather than later. >> these are pretty glum faces to deliver those presents. no smile from either one of them. but investors didn't care, they're excited about the present, the dow gained more than a full percent throughout the day. will we have a true christmas miracle? courtesy of those two. oh, let's hope that they don't wear those hats. i spoke this evening with republic
to do -- people at headquarters, they show up at election night, unless the guy or woman loses and they get excited about the guy near election night because they want a job. they want something. they want to be loved by the winner. then they treat the guy like a ticket at off-track betting on the floor you're stomping around on. so what happened here? is that the best case against the case being made against the republican party? it's a bunch of people just not loyal? that's what he's saying. >> absolutely, chris. look, i've been through this time and time again, that people are measuring the drapes before the first debate ends, especially if the nominee does a very good job. >> now they're measuring the crepe. >> true. mitt romney unfortunately never had any -- a loyal following, if you will, except for the folks in boston. the conservatives never trusted him. they didn't even trust him when he got the republican nomination back in the spring of this year. the point is these individuals are opportunists, both on the republican side and also on the democratic side. they don't
or -- >> absolutely not. they're stonewalling at every turn. they ran out the clock before the election. the president says now that the election is over, we'll cooperate. the most basic information about what happened on the night of the attack, and what survivors had to say after the attack is not being provided, and we'll talk more about that tomorrow. but long story short is i know very little from this administration about what happened in benghazi. what i'm finding out on my money makes me very upset. >> greta: is ambassador rice trying to test the waters if she's nominated? >> i have no idea, but i'll be glad to talk to her. again, it's not just about her. why did the president seven days after she spoke write this off as a video-inspired event when it's pretty clear to everybody early on this is a terrorist attack, in a coordinated way. there was no mob that turned into a riot. the riot that i've seen doesn't include heavy weapons and mortar trucks. >> greta: do i take it you're going to ask her direct questions? >> i'm going to ask her straight, direct questions because it's my job. president
, and it has become susan rice for quite some time during the election period as well as this time frame, and that seems to be a where a lot of public focus is, even though they raise criticisms about the intelligence community nor broadly. >> absolutely. kelly, thank you so much. joining me now is former state department middle east officer joel ruben, and molly ball and michael skirmonsih and jimmy williams. you heard kelly o'donnell report that the face of all of this is susan rice, but we know that the intelligence, the talking points, if you will, did not originate from her or the u.n. is it appropriate she's the face of all of this in your opinion? >> thank you, tamron, for having me on. it's unfortunate that dr. rice has become the face of this, because, in fact, she is a highly regarded accomplished civil servant leading our mission in the united nations. she was put in the spotlight in order to communicate what the intelligence community and administration believed to be the best way to communicate the attack on benghazi. rightly now congress is looking at the question of what w
ago, december of 2010 after the election, i and a bunch of other governors in both parties went to the white house, and the executive office building with the secretary and others and talked about flexibility then. the reality is the flexibility was limited mainly not to things like how many staff and the state do you have? do you have a handful like utah or hundreds like massachusetts, in terms of regulation of what has to be included and how it's governed in your state, those things are essentially dictated through the federal government, and for all the talk about flexibility, it really doesn't happen. i've got to tell you though as a governor who believes in federalism and believes in the 10th amendment instincts tiffly, my gut to have the state run it rather than the federal government. you'll get things like the food stamp program and special education anthes a mandate that for years has been mandated by the federal government and the school districts in their country and never comes close to covering the cost of that. i think that most of us who said no and deferred to th
in libya. >>> the election was only three weeks ago, but president obama's about to shift back into campaign mode. and we're learning exclusive new details about the personal and professional life of the woman at the center of the scandal that forced the resignation of cia director david petraeus. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with the obama administration's latest attempt to explain the misleading information given out in the days after the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. four americans including the u.s. ambassador to libya died in what we now know was a terrorist attack. but that isn't what the u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice said when she went on national television five days after the attack. today rice is up on capitol hill. she's explaining what happened and some big-name republicans clearly are not very happy with her answers. our senior congressional correspondent dana bash is following what's become a pretty long day -- a tiring day for the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. what's the latest,
of palestinian leadership is authentic. the people elected the leader of the palestinian people. but the americans try to divert their attention from the central issue of how to go about making peace in the middle east, and try to concentrate just how to control one party or another, this will be a grave mistake, a disservice to peace and to the stability of this region. >> so are you personally concerned that all the dealings here appear to have been done directly with hamas, and not with a wider group to include president abbas? >> well, president abbas was not absent from these negotiations. of course, when there is a fire, the extinguisher goes directly to the cause of the fire, but it is part and parcel of the palestinian struggle against the israeli occupation. if we were only to look for the future of the cease-fire, this is another mistake will be made. we have to deal with the root cause of the conflict here. the united states of america was very right when it started -- in the latter part of president bush jr., the presidency afterwards, to give the priority to the pal
the military offensive in gaz a. this is weeks before the general election. he wants to focus on his personal life. there is more to this story i think. angry workers and a fire in bangladesh. many workers were trapped in the building because of no emergency exits. some of the clothes were made for walmart and sears and clothing line of sean puppy combs. shellie moore catit po will announce her cand date for u.s. senate. she is a pro choice republican and she is a test of the gop's ability to expand the appeal to voters, the congresswoman will run for democrat jay rockefeller's seat. the senator is not saying if he will run again in 2014. it is an exciting day today. shoppers will be pounding the keyboards and not the pavement looking for on line bargains. this year's cyber monday will be a big success with americans expected to spend 1. 5 billion bucks up 20 percent from last year. i saw the deals last night. buy one and 60 percent off on the other. it is enticing. >> brian: deals are for real. and today's on line . happy to see the retailers busy over the weekend. talking about the fiscal c
from that promise? joining me in his first interview since the election, reince priebus, chairman of the republican national committee. welcome back, mr. priebus. how are you? >> doing great, piers. how are you? >> you have been keeping your head below the paraput since the shellacking you guys took in the election. what is your reaction to the pretty poor defeat? >> well, i think that we got to look at everything that we're doing. i think that's what we have to do. i don't think you can draw any quick conclusions other than the fact that we lost and we know that. but i think in order to get back in the game, you've got to look at and do a full autopsy of what happened, what we did well, what we didn't do well, what we can do better in the next year with two governors' races coming up and two years later, then four years from now. so what we're going to do is we want to bring everyone together. leaders from across the country, to look at everything that we've done, come up with a game plan, sort of a four-year plan of what we can do in the communities, out there across america, to
, it went very well. the problem was that was before thanksgiving after the election. and since that time, there's been little progress with the republicans, which is a disappointment to me. >> well, the market didn't exactly like what they heard there either. the dow lost nearly 90 points today. much of it in reaction to harry reid's dismal statement. i got an e-mail with it all in caps, the market is coming in on these headlines from harry reid. this matters, every word they say matters and white house press secretary jay carney was on the defense today. he pointed out as he had done yesterday that the president spoke on the phone with senate majority leader harry reid and john boehner over the weekend. and besides carney says, the president has to talk directly to the american people. >> it is vitally important that ordinary americans actively engage in this debate because the outcome of these negotiations and the hopeful product of these negotiations are the product that we hope emerges from these negotiations will profoundly affect their lives. >> so is the president, the missing ing
: >> it's funny to watch a senator or congressman who got himself elected by promising the citizen of his state that he would go to washington to reform government and not to pay taxes. when the going gets rough he wanted to debt ceiling increase. the same cast of chakts are turns in the homework for the second tyne two years later and there's not a snowball rolling. the good news is the people that gave a commitment to the american voters. for four years president obama has not reined in spending. all he did is demand $1.6 trillion of tax increase so he can spend more money, not reining in spending. we need focus on spending problems because that's the problem we have. >> warren buffett wrote this fascinating piece in the "new york times" today. you're familiar with it today. suppose they come to you with an investment idea. i'm in it. i think you should be, too. would your reply be this? it depends on what my tax rate is on the gain we're going to make. if the tax isn't too high, i'd rather leave the money in my savings account. war len buff set says only in norquist imagine kwis. why a
an election in january, so there's no real hope that there will be a longer-term agreement before that election, and after that it is anyone's guess as to what type of an agreement they will have here and will anybody be able to forge an agreement that will lead to a lasting peace? that is still a very big question going forward, rick. rick: conor powell live on the ground in jerusalem, thanks. heather: well, u.n. ambassador susan rice defending those early comments on the benghazi terror attacks just days after the raid on the u.s. consulate. ambassador rice went on five sunday talk shows and said that the attack grew out of a spontaneous to protest over an anti-muslim film. and now she says those remarks were based on the intelligence she was given. >> when discussing the attacks against our facilities in benghazi, i relied solely and squarely on the information provided to me by the intelligence community. i made clear that the information was preliminary and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers. heather: national security correspondent jennifer griffin
situation is different. >> i'm not obligated on the pledge. i made tennesseans aware, i was just elected, that the only thing i'm monitoring is the oath that i take when i serve when i'm sworn in this january. >> reporter: gop lawmakers bluntly stating to alert the fiscal cliff, they're ready to break from grover norquist and the pledge he's got most republicans to sign to never raise taxes. norquist waste nod time hitting back on cnn's s"starting point" >> it doesn't pass the laugh test. if you want to go to your voters and say, i promised you this and i'm breaking that problem, you can have that conversation with them. but you don't have an argument with me. you've made a commitment to your voters. >> reporter: the question, will more republicans rebel against the pledge? republican and democratic aides tell cnn despite the compromising talk it won't have much impact at all on the fiscal cliff negotiations. there's little evidence of progress from staff level talks over the thanksgiving break and no hints from senate leaders just back in town. >> the senate has spoken and president oba
of a contentious presidential election campaign. >> reporter: after meeting with rice for more than an hour, collins emerged questioning her judgment in giving the public what turned out to be incorrect information in the days after the deadly attack in benghazi. and the main republican was lukewarm about the prospect of rice as secretary of state. if president obama were to nominate susan rice to be the next secretary of state, could you support that nomination? >> i would need to have additional information before i could support her nomination. >> reporter: collins has gone out of her way to support rice in the past. even introducing rice family ties to maine at a confirmation hearing for u.n. ambassador. >> the people of maine are proud of what this remarkable woman has accomplished. >> reporter: whether collins supports rice now for a promotion is crucial because of the raw numbers. rice would likely need 60 votes to overcome a filibuster by these gop senators assuming all 55 senator who is will caucus with democrats next year vote to confirm rice, she would still need five republicans
is already one of the most volatile regions of the world, mohamed morsi, the newly elected president and head of the muslim brotherhood giving himself near absolute power at the expense of egypt's courts and the country's justices firing back calling for a strike and protests until his decree is rescinded. and, there is this: a warning from a prominent opposition leader, that egypt's military may be forced to get involved against president morsi's wishes in an effort to restore order. let's begin with steve harrigan streaming live from cairo, protesters in full force in tahrir square, do you have any idea what is next for them? >> reporter: harris, what we are likely to see on sunday and tuesday, are, perhaps, massive street protests, not just by those who want to oust mohamed morsi, who think he's trying to become a dictator but those who support him, who think he is trying to do the right thing to dry and break the logjam and get rid of the old regime, we could see tens of thousands of people marching on the streets of cairo with opposite points of view, really, close problems im to each ot
today. can't get enough romance in my day. >>> the white house election shows where the people stand on the economy, the fiscal cliff. but today we have some very specific answers to very interesting questions. cnn's political editor paul steinhauser joins me live. first of all, paul, are people paying attention to the fiscal cliff? >> it seems they are. look at this, a cnn national poll out this morning. and we asked, what will the effect be on the country if it goes over the fiscal cliff? nearly 7 in 10 say major problems for the country, maybe even a crisis, with only about 3 in 10 saying minor and no problems. and john, personally, three quarters tell us they think their pocket books will be affected if the country falls off the fiscal cliff. >> we've heard both sides fighting. what do americans say they want to see in the deal? >> they want compromise, and what do they specifically want? look at these numbers. two-thirds say they want spending cuts, and some tax increases combined. only about 3 in 10 say just spending cuts. and john, it's interesting. when we asked just republic
on israeli security? >> i think it absolutely should. what we saw even before the election here in the united states is that netanyahu has said time and again even in the face of critics that there has been no stronger ally to israel than the united states. the criticism kept comincoming, though. after this incident, i really do think the critics will be quieted. there's a lot of talk about how successful the iron dome program wus was. it deflected over 80% of the rockets that were fired into israel. president obama has committed more funding to iron dome. and i think that it really does cement the fact that this president and this administration has been a tremendous friend and ally to israel and that is not going to change. >> looking to the future, amy, with egypt's mohamed morsi stepping in to broker the peace, does it show that the region no longer needs the u.s. to take the lead role? certainly secretary of state hillary clinton was there, but maybe not a lead role anymore in this type of negotiation. >> no, and in fact, the united states was very crucial to president morsi negotiating
demonstrated in support of the democratically elected president. >> he is trying to take care of the country. he is trying to secure stability for this country. >> reporter: rallying on his behalf, they are opposing the judge's club that calls for a national wide strike. lawmakers in the united states say while they appreciate their help brokering the cease-fire, his actions raise concern. >> to assume this kind of power is unacceptable to the united states of america. >> we don't obviously have want to see a democratically-elected aut ocrat take place of a dictator that was the case before that. >> reporter: opposition in support groups are planning competing rallies in cairo at locations less than a mild apart. it could set the stage for more violence. >> back at home, enjoy the nice weather. change is coming for the workweek, les birth? >>> it has been a pleasant holiday weekend weatherwise. we will see clouds rolling in and patchy fog. coast bay and inland, the temperatures will stay in the 40s, low to upper 40s along the coast and bay. by tomorrow, we will see highs in the 60s, once a
house. their first post-election meeting, jon. jon: wow! what is the latest from republicans on what the president has to say today? >> reporter: speaker john boehner just had a news conference on capitol hill and he expressed frustration because he is saying look, republicans put some tax revenues on the table but what they see the democratic side trying to pull entitlement reforms like medicare off the table. john boehner basically saying he thinks the spending situation is sort of a freight train that is coming at the nation right now. republicans senator mitch mism the leader in the senate -- mitch mcconnell blasted the president of saying he is doing is too much campaigning and not governing. take a listen. >> it is over. he won. congratulations. we have a hard deadline here however. and it is still, he is still out on the campaign trail, kind of celebrating. this is the problem. if the president really wants to reach an dwreechlt he needs to be talking with members of his own party right here in washington trying to broker an agreement, not out there firing up crowds and giving
: this is disconcerting once again. instid of members that we elect to congress to get things done for us. they can't sit in the room for a photoop and now back out on the campaign trial and people making youtube videos about what they think about the fiscal cliff. that's what the administration is asking people to do to convince members of congress to vote. what about saving that time and actually doing the job we elected you to do to sit in the room and get something done. >> steve: according to the president's side. he learned a valuable lesson in the summer of 2011 when they tried to get a grand bargain with john boehner. he will negotiate with the congress. we'll go out campaign style. it never ends . gretch mentioned twitter, they have launchhed a hash tag my 2 k to get people to explain how it impacts them. it is turning out to be a dud. >> brian: two things to be noted. dick durbin gave the encouraging quote. everything should be on the table. we have to get ourselves out of i had to read it three times because he is number two ranking democrat. and i read behind the scenes, it is a disaster in t
the election, his number-1 priority will be jobs and the economy. we agree with that. but your number-1 priority is jobs and the economy you don't grow the economy to create jobs by raising taxes on small businesses, the people who create the jobs. >> white house press secretary today, jay carney said when he was asked when the next meeting would be, the answer was, it would come, quote at the appropriate time. >> well, nobody know what is that means -- >> no! that's my point. is that -- is that, you know -- look, all of have you had a vacation, i refer, to while you are campaigning the last 3 months. have you known about this fiscal cliff for a year and-a-half. now the president's going out, friday, to do, as you say, campaigning. the press secretary says there will be a meeting between the leaders at the appropriate time. that seems like it's right now. >> it does. to me, what you are seeing with the president and the democrats, is sort of an attempt to run out the clock. i think they think they gain leverage if the pressure builds. you are hearing a lot of prominent democrats saying,
. the president said in his press conference right after the election that his number one priority is jobs and the economy. we agree with that. but if your number one priority is jobs and the economy, you don't grow the economy and create jobs by raising taxes on small businesses, the very people who create those jobs. >> greta: white house press secretary today jay carney when asked when the next meeting with congressional members would be, the answer was, quote, it would come at the appropriate time. >> nobody knows what that means. >> greta: that's my point. look, all of you have had a vacation, campaigning, doing that for the last three months. you've been about this fiscal cliff for a year and a half. now the president is going out to do, as you say, campaigning. the press secretary says there will be a meeting between leaders at the appropriate time. the appropriate time seems like pretty much right now. >> well, it is. what you're seeing by the president and democrats is an attempt to run out the clock. i think they think they gain leverage if the pressure builds toward the end of t
elected president, morsey was. and now he, they believe, has become no different than mubarak. >> yesterday, the former assistant secretary of defense spoke out on what's happening there. >> president obama is really stuck now. that is is, he wants to court morsey but now that morsey is acting extra illegally, he he is almost forcing president obama to have to rebuke him publicly. and the question is whether president obama will do. so. >> >> we probably should have been quicker to reserve the praise. susan rice was the first one who spoke out immediately praising mohammed morsey. to charles krauthammer's point, it's the money that we hold power in all of this over a billion dollars a year goes to egypt. maybe that's something that the united states holds on to. s and congressman that want to defund egypt entirely. that money probably ought to be held back. >> they're the people once again making their demands. can you see from the videos here. >> looks like the arab spring, right? >> remember what happened in to your knowledge and spilled into egypt. this all started here an
days after the election to resign instead of letting voters select his successor on november 6th. congressman bobby rush the only person who beat barack obama in an election is sticking um for the embattled 47-year-old. >> i don't think that anybody has been duped. i think that that this is a process that no one really knew exactly what was going to happen. >> jackson was under investigation for allegedly skimming campaign funds to remodel his house, among other things. and in a letter to speaker boehner said i am aware of the ongoing federal investigation into my activities and i'm doing my best to address the situation responsibly, cooperate with the investigators and accept responsibility for my mistakes, for they are my mistakes and mine alone. within four days, illinois governor pat quinn is expected to announce the date of a special election to replace expwraction and former congresswoman debby halverson who lost to jackson in a primary this year hasn't ruled out another run. she also made clear she doesn't think much of the nine term congressman. >> i hate to use the word
they get re-elected. they're doing a fine job. saxby, lindsey, call me, no pledges for me. i pledge to help you. >> i think they're doing what they should do, which is their job at representing the people. but l.c., let me ask you this. graham has said that he is open to raising more revenue but only if the democrats are willing to make cuts in entitlement program. so seems like a legitimate request. uncht know what i don't get with this whole discussion? two things. the idea that we're not going to raise taxes but we're going to cut deductions or cap them. that's raising taxes. that's moving a shell game around. we're raising revenue through tax raises. doesn't matter what you call them so long as the result is the same. the other thing i don't get is this notion that democrats are the ones that protect entitlements and republicans are ones that are trying to protect businesses or rich people. i think we've got to get past this oversimplification. there's not a republican in office -- maybe you can correct me -- not a republican is saying we need to get rid of entilgtzmentes. they want to
. secondly, we elect democratically our presidents who acquire authorities which are more than enough for him to be an active president in shaping egyptian politics, in shaping domestic politics and regional politics. and he does not need additional prerogatives and authorities. thirdly, egyptians have always held the judicial branch of government in high regards and these are not like any lack of what -- of the judicial branch of government to be part of what our -- revolution is all about. >> could this be something that's good for you? as a former member of parliament, the judges needed to dissolve parliament, putting you out of your job and now that morsi's trying to seize power from the judges, is this something that could end up being good? >> no, let me tell you right away, i'm here speaking as a political scientist as well. countries which make it to success and transition to democracy after the revolution have always managed to build institutions and to respect the checks and balances. what morsi does is basically to freeze checks and balances. i'm not aware of any dictatorship which
medicare plans that may be right for you. call now. elected president takes oath of office he meets with president obama at the white house. nieto wants to talk about trade, manufacturing, energy deals between mexico and the united states. wolf blitzer sat down with him for an interview a couple of hours ago. more on that in a bit. mexico's president-elect wants to update the conversation between his country and the united states. he's talking about the drug wars, security, immigration, all of those things on the agenda. millions of people in both countries are affected by the decisions that he and president obama make and it's time to redirect the relationship. how do they do it? cnn contributor ruben navaret. you wrote a to-do list for both leaders. what does the new president of mexico, what does he need to do? >> right. i think, suzanne, one of the thing his needs to do is reframe the relationship and redefine the paradigm. the case that mexico comes to the was asks for certain things, recently for $1.4 billion in funding under the initiative to help fight the drug war. i think
